Hi Baseball Families,

 

The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) along with the support of the MN Governor’s Office, certain Youth Sports programs will be allowed to open starting June 1st .  Under the guidance of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) regarding youth sports activities and abiding by approved social distancing guidelines,  CLAYBA is choosing to give our kids an opportunity to participate this season and will begin its season starting June 1st.  As a youth focused organization, we are taking the Covid-19 situation seriously and expect our families to support us in following these guidelines as well. Here is a link to some of those guidelines: https://www.health.state.mn.us/diseases/coronavirus/schools/socialdistance.pdf  

 

Because of the fluency of things, full details of the season are still being worked on. The following are some highlights at this time:

 

  • We have extended our registration deadline to support the late season start. If you have not yet registered and want to participate, sign up using the Register Online.
  • We understand not all families will be comfortable participating in the season, at this time CLAYBA will offer a refund for any families choosing not to participate.
  • Due to the fluency of guidelines and CLAYBA’s financial commitment to have a season.  If you chose to start the season, we will not be able to accommodate a refund afterwards.  
  • At this time there is a limit of 10 people practicing together as a team.
  • Guardians are encouraged to drop their players off in the parking lot and return to pick them up.
    • Because some of the younger players, will most likely allow Guardians to watch from the outfield fence-lines as long as social distancing guidelines set forth by The Department of Health are being followed.
  • We will have a check-in process for all players.
  • We will have a disinfectant process for players and equipment.
  • Players will need to have their own gloves, but are also encouraged this season to have their own batting helmet and bat, but not to worry.  We will have them available as well and a disinfectant process for them.
  • Games have NOT been approved at this time.  We are hopeful that by mid-June games will be opened by the State. 
    • Even if games are not approved, we will continue to practice, have game type scenarios and have some fun out on the fields.

 

Coaches should be reaching out to registered players over the next few days to start scheduling practices.  If you have any questions, use the Contact Us link at the bottom of the webpage.
